Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE FOUR THE LET^BRIDGiE DAILY HERALD DAILY AND WEEKLY Proprietors and Publl�her� (THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD PRINTING COMPANY, LIMITED 823 6th Street South, Lethbrlda* W.

I havo j only two sons. Both of them nro at | the front. They are with General , Pershing. I may see them again and ; I may not. I am a father as you men ^ hero are f.ith6rs. You will see your sons go over before this trouble is over. 'Wo are not fighting the battle ot the allies': wo are fighting the battle of the United States." It Is men ot the Lewis type in every country that will wln'tho war just because thay thlnlt more" of country than they do,of themselves. � WOODROW WILSON FOLLOWS THE UNION IDEA President Wilson believes In non-partisanship in the conduct ot the war in the United States. As has been said before, he really has adoptj ed Union government in the republic. In selecting, men to direct the conduct ot the yttiT, and to deal with the problems created by the war, he has summoned to his counsels men ot all political beliefs. It is true that his cabinet is made up of Democrats but he has been able to obtain the support of hia war policy by men ot all parties in congress. And now what do wo find hltn' doing? Actually calling upon the 'Democrats of Minnesota to elect a Republican as senator in that State. We are told by the Xew 'i^ork Outlook that: Knute Nelson, of Minnesota, n Republican, has received a signal honor in President 'VVllson's suggestion to the Democrats of that State that its senior senator should be re-elected to the senate by both parties. This is not only a personal compliment to Jlr. Nelson but also an acknowledgement of his value as a supporter of the government in this critical time. Mr. Nelson's opinions on all subjects now before congress are those of a peculiarly shrewd observer and a man of far riper experience in state and national legislation than any possible successor could show. That is reason enough for the president's choice, Mr. Nelson was bom in Norway. He came early to this country. He fought In the Civil War. He occupied various state offices. He represented Minnesota in three congresses. He was twice-governor of his state. He;has served twenty-two years "in The United States senate. It is not too soon to think of the occupancy ot his seat after March 3, 1919. The president has happily given expression to the general and increasing non-partisan feeling throughout the country-a feeling specially evident in some ot the present Investigations in congress. Non-partisanship at this time is a necessity. ' Woodrow Wilson realizes, as has Caij^aja, and most other, of the allied nations, that m "union there is strength" and at no time is strength so greatJy requli-ed by a nation as when 'n is engaged in war. ^ A chewing gnm manufacturer is now mayor ot London, Ont. City councils usually run strong on "chewing."' Somebody advocates a cheatless day. Why not make it "dhys" instead of "day." If so we might have a general practice ot honesty. v'l-; believe," eaid Abraham Lincoln, "that this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half tree. I dp not expect the Union to be dissolved-I do not expect the house to fall-but I do expect that it will cease to be divided." Canada cannot be halt tor the war and half against. It must become united. Will the ode faltering eletnent kindly take notice. ^PICK]^ VP IN-'^ PASSING J^OP'TUB BUSY MAN  The chairman ot the Basket Social Comniittee in aid ot the Halifax Relief received a letter from Mayor Hardie of Lethbrldge. this morning stating thcit the .city; of Lethbrldge was expressing a cak? for the.b^kft social oni Thursday night.-Medicine Hat Newi. � Now the uppermost question will be: "Did the mayor bake it himseltr* EtlwaVd Sewbll, heading resident of Meaford, Ont, Is dead.
